SPOKANE: Boomtown welcomes the abyss

| February 23, 2024 1:00 AM

“The United States has not reached the stage of an overpeopled Europe, where the propertied and the poor are natural enemies.” — James Madison.  

Jack London lived with the poor in overpopulated Europe, then he wrote The People of The Abyss.

The Spokane media reports on how gleeful Spokane representatives are over how people from Seattle are realizing Spokane is a great place to live. Reminds me of the mindset of Crocodile Dundee when he speculated: imagine seven million people wanting to live together.  

Yeah, New York must be the friendliest place on Earth.
